Endorsements & Reviews
“The prose swirls in
graceful arcs that frequently rise to the level of poetry, leavened by mordant
humor. . . . A powerful tale, stylishly told.” — Washington Post
“A potent, distinctive
autobiography. . . . Flynn’s talents are considerable—he has a compelling voice
and a wry sense of humor, especially about himself.” — New York Times Book Review
“Told with energy,
critical reflection and sensitivity, Another Bullshit Night in Suck City is less a memoir than a study of one of America’s
darker conundrums: homelessness. . . . [It suggests] Lear, Beckett, Faulkner,
Genet and forc[es] us to decide which is more painful: a parent’s lost dreams
or a child’s lost innocence.” — Los Angeles Times Book Review
